Welcome back to the Tapers’ Section, where this week we have Grateful Dead music from 1970, 1982, and 1987.
Our first selection this week is from the lesser-known early show from 2/13/70 at the Fillmore East in New York City, featuring Good Lovin' > Drums > Good Lovin', Mama Tried > Black Peter, Hard To Handle, Saint Stephen> Not Fade Away. The late show’s Dark Star>TIFTOO>Lovelight is understandably the famous sequence from this show, but check out this Not Fade Away, a jam-filled early version.
Next is the start of the show from 2/19/82 in San Diego, featuring Bertha > Greatest Story Ever Told, Dire Wolf, Little Red Rooster, Brown Eyed Women.
Lastly this week is the high-energy end of the show from 6/30/87, at Canada’s Wonderland just north of Toronto, a wonderful show. From Kingswood Music Theatre, here’s Space > The Other One > China Doll> Dear Mr. Fantasy > Around And Around> Good Lovin', Box Of Rain.
Be sure to join us here next week for more music from the vault.
